of the united states house of representatives. the united states senate, the senate majority leader, the speaker of the house, the honorable edward brooke, and the president of the united states. [applause] [applause] [applause] [applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, majority leader of the united states senate, the honorable harry reid. [applause] >> everyone, please be seated. november 6, 1962, was a special day for president john kennedy. it was a day his brother ted won his old seat in the united states senate. the seat he would hold for the next 46 years, until just two months ago. a seat from which he would greatly improve the lives of his fellow americans. but on that election night, president kennedy took particular notice of another result from that same ballot in massachusetts. the people of the president's home state had elected edward brooke to be its attorney general, making him the first african-american to hold statewide office in massachusetts and the first african-american to serve as any state's attorney general. president john kennedy exclaimed, and i quote, "that's the biggest ne

that whenever its firepower, the united states is impatient and will eventually go away. a visit to afghanistan reveals both sides of this complicated and ambitious strategy." we want to be more of your reaction to this story about king abdullah -- to this story about the withdrawal of abdullah abdullah. caller: this is a way for obama to disentangle himself from afghanistan under the pretense that we cannot further sacrifice troops in support of a government that is obviously corrupt. thank you. host: the secretary of state had the only response yesterday. israel put forth what the secretary called unprecedented concessions. netanyahu offered them in an effort to restart peace talks, a departure of the administration's earlier criticism of israel. meanwhile, the story this morning is inside a "the new york times." -- inside of "the new york times." "the secretary of state failed on saturday to slow down and not stopped the jewish construction of settlements on the west end. edward, good morning. caller: we need to enhance our relationships with all people. i think that obama should stand up an
policy he has. his one great achievement is to enhance the status of the united states. now, that happens to have zero cash value it turns out. the iranians, the north koreans, the afghan government, china and india regarding carbon limitations he's made no progress on any of these fronts but people like us better so i suppose that's an achievement. >> i think he absolutely has changed, george, the perception of america. i think he's also changed some things here, the economy. when you look at the gdp up 3.5. when you look at 30-year mortgages and a lower rate than it's ever been. >> be careful. unemployment almost 10%. >> unemployment -- again, the hardest thing once you bring an economy back is the jobs. i think he has to finish the task. let's remember, george, he's only been there ten months as president. in nine months he's helped restore america's image, helped to stop the hemorrhaging of ons and bring the economy back, so in nine months when it usually takes to make a baby he's starting the rebirth of america. >> ed gillespie, valerie jarrett's answer on why the partisan divide has

at the constitution of the united states. so after a time, a number of years, he began to see the document as a hope and you wonder, am i being consistent? if i am not being consistent, there is not anything to prevent me from doing what i want. everyone will have something different what they want and we will have chaos. so there is a different pattern. you begin to see things as a whole. looking back, i think, yes, there are certain principles or purchase or ways that a judge will have of approaching certain problems. >> there is a lot to be setup with the approach. one of my favorite cartoons is two justices in robes coming off the bench, and one says what i really get a kick of is taking the law into my own hands. [laughter] >> the court decided four years ago when it ruled on the death penalty being unconstitutional for juvenile under the age of 18. justice scalia, why do you think it is wrong? >> because i think what the ban and in 1791 when it was adopted, it means today. for example, why not say that the death penalty is unconstitutional apply to everybody, not just people under 18? what sto
be the united states is no more cruel than it was then, but it provides to other provisions of the bill of rights as well. for example some of the provisions according trial rights to defendants. many people today don't think these provisions are as important as the framers did, such as the right to trial by jury. britain polished it for minor crimes, even, and for all civil matters. now, the constitution guarantees it for all civil matters, common law exsithe -- exceeding $20. the constitution assures criminal defendants, for example, that they have the right to confront witnesses against them. and it is clear what confronting means. it is clear the witness has to come to court and testify. there are people that think it is a lot of trouble. europeans never did it that way and there are some people that think we shouldn't do it that way and that has been one of the issues before our court. if you believe in an evolving constitution you would eliminate the right of confrontation, which our court did essentially for 20 years. you don't have to come into court. the court can submit hire,
a couple of ways in which antagonism toward the united states an incentive to conduct anti-u.s. violence has been exacerbated. it is not a switch that lips were after one troupe or 70,000 troops, what was not an occupation becomes an occupation. it is a matter of degrees. the more of a war is seen to be americanized, the more we will furnish the issue of anti- occupation. it brings into the fight many people who have no sympathy for the objectives of the taliban, but they become enemies of hours. -- enemies of ours. there is also the collateral damage and casualties that we have read all too often about, which are an inevitable byproduct of even the most carefully planned and skillfully executed counter terrorist operation. these things are important not because we are running a popularity contest, but because the anti-american sentiments that they generate and encourage mean that many more supporters for anti-u.s. terrorism and that many more people who are likely recruits. we hear a lot about pakistan as well. the main point about pakistan is, what happens in pakistan will depend on fo
. these are not small issues. it is not written in stone that the united states of america will be as strong as we have been for the decades and centuries to come. you only have to be a casual student to understand that strong countries used to be strong em pirps have to renew themselves at moments of challenge. we led in the industrial revolution. we led in the information revolution. we have to lead in the green revolution and china and india and other countries are aggressively in that space. so this is what he's asking people to do is not necessarily thing that is the short-term benefit will be clear in the next election or the one after that or the one after that. washington has failed the country because they refuse to do the tough things that we all know we have to do. if we don't make the right progress on health care and energy, our economy is going to struggle for decades to come. >> all goals but you are in the politics business k. he take the message without suffering losses next year? >> well, everyone in washington wants to predict what happens next fall. this thing has 20 lifetimes. i th

these officials who allowed this to happen. the united states i guess went along with that. why doesn't it change the situation? >> well, i think first of all, as i said, he made a political judgment. i thought that his remarks today were rather moderate. he left open as to whether his supporters should participate in the process. he's establishing himself as a leader of the opposition. but every poll that has been taken there suggested that he was likely to be defeated anyway. so we are going to deal with the government. obviously there areish issues we need to discuss such as reducing the high level of corruption. these are issues we'll take up with president karzai. >> schieffer: is there any word, mr. axelrod, on when we can expect the president to make this decision on whether or not he's going to put more troops in there? >> bob, i expect the president will make a decision within weeks. as you know, he's gone through a very rigorous process because the goal here is not just to make an mathematical judgment about the number of troops but to make sure we have the right strategy to reach our g

religion. germany has more muslims than lebanon and twice as many mosques as the united states. young muslims here describe themselves as more religious than their parents in a country where few christians go to church. berlin is sometimes called the atheist capital of europe. but while religious freedom is shrined in the german constitution, public schools are required to offer christian religious instruction. leaders of muslim organizations are now demanding islamic religious instruction, as well, and tensions are growing. >> the number of people that don't want to live together with muslims, that don't want to have a mosque in their neighborhood, this number is rising. >> reporter: according to public opinion polls, the vast majority of germans associate islam with violence and terrorism, and they resent what they see as too many muslims sponging off the german welfare system. but the country's strong social safety net may be one reason why germany has not seen the kind of violence that scorched muslim neighborhoods in france a few years ago. young muslims there took to the streets
, on technology. it cannot afford to make mistakes. it is a mentality. >> why does israel spy on the united states? >> israel says it doesn't. that is the first ring. there was a notorious case in 1985. one man got a life sentence. he worked for naval intelligence. he did deliver secret documents, photos, two israelis in washington. he was caught. he tried to seek shelter -- seek shelter in the israeli embassy, but the isrlis refuse to give them shelter. the fbi arrested him. he was branded by israel as a rogue operation. it was part of the israeli defense ministry. since then, israel promised not to do anything like it again. the fbi still thinks israel is doing it. >> right, but a lot of it comes from israel feeling that we may not be 100% on israel's side. especially with this administration, this spying needs to go on because we are not so sure the americans are with us. we just had a report in the un that could further emphasize the fact that they are not feeling comfortable about us. it was said that israel should be brought up on war crimes. >> the u.s. voted on the israeli side. >> we did.

for the president of the united states, 46 times the pay for the fed chair and treasury secretary, and more than 50 times as much as a military general. how did you determine that amount was not contrary to the public interests? >> well, we did it a number of ways. first, we gathered all the data we could gather and examined the data as to what constitute competitive market place compensation. then what we did is we made sure that that 9 million or 8 million was not guaranteed compensation. the cash component of that 9 million is likely to be $500,000 or less. the rest of it, as congressman burton pointed out, the rest of it is tied to stock which cannot be redeemed at once, has to be held two, three, four years, and a big chunk of that compensation cannot be redeemed by the official until and unless top money is repaid to the taxpayer. so it may be 9 million in theory, but in practice we believe it will be a lot less than that. gentlewoman your time has expired. >> i would like to place in the record information we have about the clients of the gentleman's law firm and would appreciate response. >
and you get on a plane and go somewhere, even out of the united states, what is the one tip that you would have for people who haven't had the vaccine but travel? >> first of all, we have to see what the pattern will be. the virus will taper back down. we hope it does. no guarantee it will. in the middle of a flu season where there is a lot of respiratory diseases, you should limit it to essential travel and not go to crowded places. you can't make a prediction of what will happen at christmas. we don't know if it will peak and come down and level off. that's the reason why the cdc tracks this carefully, literally in real time on a daily basis. >> jamie: dr. anthony fauci, infectious disease specialist. will you come back and speak with us again as it progresses? >> more than happy to. >> jamie: thank you very much. nice to see you. >> eric: we're seeing the horror stories, drivers operating trains for example can an texting on the cell phones with the devastating results. now more an more states are moving to ban texting behind the wheel. take a look. the government doesn't track statisti
across america. >> every state in the united states has a population that is overweight and obese. it's, it's an epidemic, it's a nightmare, and if we don't do something now, we're going to have a crash like the stock market in our health. >> we're gonna give you today a way-- not just for you, but every family at home-- to be able to turn this thing around so, guys, give a really big, warm welcome to brent jr. and payton! [applause] [♪...] what's up? you don't want to be here? you know what we're talking about, we're talking about food, right? i'm gonna take a break. when we come back, i'ma bet you something. you like spinach? >> no. [laughter] >> [mouthing words] you like... you like green lettuce? >> brent jr.: [softly] yeah. >> yeah? do you like... how about, do you like beets? >> i don't know what that is. >> that's a, that's a weird vegetable that your mom probably never gave you because she didn't think you would eat it, o.k., right? when we come back, what if i told you, right now, i bet you... i'm gonna give you some spinach, some beets... you're gonna drink it and be shock
that regardless of whether or not we have a stable government the united states has national interests in making sure that the taliban and ail dad al-qaet take root there but it is a really difficult situation when you have not only political corruption but narco corruption. >> chris: afghanistan epolitics will be there next creek. let's talk about the u.s. elections. >> big news in what we thought was the third race in upstate new york, the special congressional election. the liberal republican dede scozzafava in effect dropped out on saturday, making it a race between the democrat bill owens and the conservative doug hoffman. a democrat has not won that seat since 1852. now, big is this race now for both parties? >> i think this race is big because it is the only one out there. a microcostumes many of the civil war that -- a microcosm of the civil war occurring within the party. primaries are good thing and there should have been one for the republicans in that race and there wasn't. dede scozzafava was hand picked by some county chairman. if there had been a primary, hoffman would have been t
government the united states has national interests in making sure that the taliban and al qaeda do not take root there. but, it is really a difficult situation, when you have not only political corruption but narcocorruption. >> chris: you know what, afternoon politics will there be next week and let's talk about the u.s. election which will not be here next week, mara, big news, interestingly, what we thought in the race, upstate new york the congressional election, the liberal republican, dede scozzafa scozzafava, mabowed out and the democrat, they've not seen a democrat since 1852. >> it is' big race, the only one out there and is a microcosm of the civil war occurring inside the republican party and one of the morals of the story here is primaries are good things and there should have been one. for the republicans in that race and there wasn't. dede scozzafava was hand-picked by a county chairman and if there was a primary, hoffman would have been the nominee and the question is what lesson will republicans nationally take from this and certainly i think it will say the right, grassroot
department was solely to defend the constitution of the united states. i have been violating that what i saw congress being light into this war, as did all those other german -- lied into this war, as did all these other gentlemen. i will come to the fact, as did matthew hoh, that the constitution superseded all of those other loyalties, and that is what i told the truth. i get the documents, tiff them first to senator fulbright's -- gave them first to senator fulbright. he did not put them out, because he was afraid of political retaliation from the administration. after two more innovations, cambodia and -- two more innovations, cambodia and laos, the effort was widening. as it is widening now. someone in my position my advice is don't wait until the war has started. if you have the documents and notes that we have gone in the wrong direction, consider going to congress, but also to the press. in the beginning, that is what i should have done but i should not have -- that is what i should have done. i should not have waited a year and a half before going to "the new york times." i say to p
